The baseball club of the University of Tokyo stopped its straight defeats at 95 in Tokyo Big6 baseball league. Its coach is Kenichi Yazawa, who is a former major batter of Chunichi Dragons. Confused by the club members who booked getting coaching from him, asked for a rationale, decided on their tactics logically on the premise of no hit, and thought a tool as a tool as if they studied in a cram school, he started telling them how to use the equipment, that is, to have a heart. From Kanro Watanabe's interview notes in the September issue of Bungeishunju.
